Here are two ways to get the sort of inside-out glow and bloom in your complexion that you usually get after a facial – but in the comfort of your own bathroom and in a matter of minutes!
It’s fantastic what these two, super-effective, naturally-based exfoliating and brightening treatments can achieve in the most gentle, non-abrasive way. And each smells AMAZING!
I like to apply one of these like a mask, before 5-10 minute soak in the bath (for a real treat), or while I’m running around getting on with something else!
Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Refine & Polish Miracle Balm (£57) has the most lovely, intensive balm texture and delicious smell (a gorgeous mix of chamomile, eucalyptus, rosemary and bergamot essential oils).
Fruit enzymes get to work naturally removing dead skin cells and brightening the skin. Just add water to emulsify the balm and rinse it clean away.
This really left me glowing when I needed a tired-skin-pick-me-up the other day and I’m really impressed with everything I’ve tried so far in this lovely range!
Also based on essential oils, the Aromatherapy Associates Essential Enzyme Peel (£41) works in a very similar way, stimulating the skin as fruit acids from pineapple, passion flower and grape gently exfoliate and help you get your glow back.
A quick tip: don’t be tempted to leave this sort of treatment on for longer than the recommended time (so easily done, especially as it feels so lovely and smells so delicious!), but rinse it off promptly to avoid being left a little more ‘glowy’ than intended!
If your skin needs a little mid-summer TLC and a radiance boost and decide to give them a try, let me know how you get on!
